Having a party can be fun but it can also be a rather nerve wracking and mind-boggling endeavor if you do not know how to properly plan. Especially, when it comes to food and drinks. Here are some tips you might want to consider when you are planning a party and want to have quick ideas for what chow to serve your guests:Plan around a theme – one of the easiest ways to plan a food and drinks menu for a party is to plan around a certain theme. When you have a theme, you can easily select food types and drinks that will complement these foods to revolve around your theme. For example, if you are planning on a Western style party, you can opt for foods that are reminiscent of the Wild West like huge slabs of roasted beef, corn on the cob, wild rice, pumpkin pie and other similar food.Consider your guests preferences – if you have guests who are vegetarians or are allergic to certain shellfish, you may want to consider these as things you need to work around when coming up with a food and drinks menu for your party.Consider something simple yet tasty – some people go overboard with trying to impress people with what they serve at parties. Simple yet tasty fare is actually a lot better for them. Try to incorporate some of the simpler foods to prepare in your menu along with a few impressive ones to help you manage your time better and to leave you a little less frazzled.
